Her sisters might be the queens of reality TV, but Kendall Jenner is looking to carve her own path in life — through modeling.

“I’m not really thinking about college right now,” Jenner, 16, told PEOPLE Monday while trying on dresses at Rent the Runway‘s Pop-up Shop at West Hollywood’s Andaz Hotel. “If my career, like, blows up and gets really big, [modeling] is what I would do.”

Though we’ve seen Kim Kardashian‘s younger sis struggle with her nerves while walking the runway on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner says those initial jitters are all in the past.

“I want to [walk the runway] again and again,” she said. “It was so much fun, like the adrenaline and everything was really fun.”

The budding fashionista, who calls her own style “edgy [and] girly, but colorful,” shared some of her own style tips and influences.

“I like to add color… and I think that heels make the outfit look 10 times better,” said Jenner, who often “raids” sister Kourtney‘s closet. “I love Hervé Léger dresses just because I love bandage dresses … [and] I love jumpers.”

As for showing skin both on and off the runway, the teen believes less is more.

“I think if you look cute but like, classy, even though you are showing skin, I think that’s fine,” she said. “I wouldn’t like, go crazy. I am not that kind of a person.”

Can she, like, say like any more?

she’s beautiful– why shouldn’t she halt her CONTINUING education to model? AT LEAST she’s finishing high school- most models don’t even do that. She is GORGEOUS and should make the most of this opportunity. school isn’t for everybody and if she can be successful in this, then why shouldn’t she?
You all just hate her because she is STUNNING and SUCCESSFUL and because she’s connected to the Kardashian clan. However, she is NOT one of them- and none of them have the looks to actualllllly model like she does

Ummmm, looks like she left her pants or skit behind in the dressing room.

She is definitely built for it!

College isn’t for everyone. Kendall Jenner is likely to make a fortune as a model. More power to her.

That leaves the only one left NOT to take advantage of Kim’s sex tape that started all the K clans popularity the youngest sister. Give her a couple of years. She’s a pretty girl but “less is more” is exactly the attitude she shouldn’t have at 16.

Yet another intelligent decision by a member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Don’t be an idiot…go to college.

Dummy! Education is important than modeling.

Why is she only wearing a blouse????

Go for it girl!!!! School will be there when you are old and fat. Follow your dream while you are marketable.
